No, Akin is a GOOD, CONSERVATIVE candidate! It’s the RINO’s who don’t want him going to Washington DC. They are the ones who grabbed the ball from the Left and ran with it, thus blowing Akin’s sure-bet lead against McCaskill. Had the GOP continued to support Akin after his ill-informed comment, he would still be leading McCaskill by a mile. It wasn’t his words that hobbled him, it was the GOP.
Disclosure: I didn’t vote for Akin in the primaries, I voted for Sarah Steelman. However, unlike the GOP RINO’s, I’m not stupid; we need to get McCaskill out of the Senate at ALL costs!
The were all good conservative candidates. And Akin won out. Now we're finding out exactly why McCaskill wanted to run against him in the first place.
Had the GOP continued to support Akin after his ill-informed comment, he would still be leading McCaskill by a mile.
Let's place blame where blame is due, shall we? If Akin hadn't made his foolish and uninformed comment to begin with then the GOP leadership wouldn't have seen the need to distance themselves from him. The McCaskill would have had to limp along with the remaining Akin comments that are making up the bulk of her ads.
This was a winnable seat. It looks like Akin is going to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The blame for that doesn't lie with me or the national GOP. It lies with Todd Akin.
